WEDDING WATCH: Expert: Crowd was a bit ‘subdued’
Question of the Day
LONDON (AP) - As Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot, Associated Press journalists are hunting down the most interesting details, from Westminster to points around the globe. Here’s the latest on the big event.
Jennie Bond, the royals expert who’s consulting for The Associated Press, kept a close eye on the royal kiss _ and the crowd’s reaction to it.
“The crowd then went wild.”
Otherwise, the crowds Friday were “a little more subdued” than Bond expected.
“There’s more realism. There was a quieter feeling about the day,” she said, “except for when the carriage came by, and the kiss.”
It’s not exactly a Pac-Man game you can play when you’re procrastinating, but Google’s latest doodle does have a certain fairy-tale charm to it.
Google, which reguarly changes the logo atop its search page for holidays and special events, swithced to a fanciful drawing of a royal carriage being led through the streets of Westminster.
Click on it, and you go to a search for “Royal Wedding.” Which is probably why you went to Google anyway.
